The first-ever Mountaineer Fan Festival is also slated for Sunday, Feb. 18, inside the WVU Coliseum, and will take place prior to the start of the Beauty and the Beast event.
The Coliseum gates will open at 12:30 p.m. The gymnastics and wrestling competitions will begin at 2 p.m.
The Mountaineer Fan Festival will bring many WVU teams and student-athletes together in one place for a fun afternoon of games and activities. Upon entrance, fans are encouraged to pick up their passport for the day and visit each of the team stations. Team stations will range in variety and include: a selfie station with members of the WVU football team (QB Will Grier, DB Dravon Askew-Henry and LB David Long Jr), an autograph station with members of the women’s basketball team, photos with the 2017 NCAA Rifle Championship trophy and team, and much more!
Fans will get a stamp for their passports at each station. Completed passports may be turned into the WVU athletic marketing staff at the Gold Gate, and participants will be eligible for one of five grand prizes: two tickets to the men’s basketball team’s game against Texas Tech on Feb. 26 at 9 p.m., two baseball season tickets, a basketball signed by coach Bob Huggins, a 2017 football poster signed by coach Dana Holgorsen and a WVU swag bag filled with Mountaineer gear. The winners will be announced during the gymnastics/wrestling competition, and fans must be present to win.
One ticket gains fans admittance to both the Mountaineer Fan Festival and the Beauty and the Beast competition. Tickets for Mountaineer Kids Club members are free with badge. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for youths and senior citizens and $2 for groups of 10 or more. WVU students are admitted free with a valid WVU Student I.D. Tickets are on sale now at WVUGAME.com and also will be available for purchase at the WVU Coliseum Gold Gate Ticket Office on Feb. 18.
